Ah yes I had forgotten about that.

Yeah the Mars one had more significance for me because Sheldon held out his hand waiting for her to hold it, real confidence and comfort in that. We need more of it and other displays of affection in Season 10 for sure.

Here we go Season 10!  Looking forward to all kinds of Shamy goodness!  I marathon-watched all Season 6 thru the season 9 finale the other day when no one was home (my little secret).  It's amazing to see the progression in their relationship.  I think it was more obvious since I watched it all in a short amount of time (fast forwarding thru a lot of BLAH scenes).  

Shamy is in a good place right now, like Molaro said.  Okay, so their relationship isn't perfect, but whose is???  All relationships are 2 steps forward, one step back.  Sheldon and Amy have moved ahead light-years in the last season.

You can feel the love in that look she gives him.

On a side note for people who remember every single detail was that the first episode that Sheldon initiated a hand holding? When they told Penny and Leonard about getting a pet Sheldon clearly holds his hand out to Amy to get her to reciprocate. More hand holding please in Season 10!

I wonder if they would ever try again getting a pet someday, or maybe that would bring back bad memories.

What stuns me even more is when he does something unconscious, like it is naturally and normal. like he did when Amy wanted to hold his hand and he stretched out his hand so she could grab it. Or the one, April has mentioned, when he just grabbed Amy´s hand automatically, while they were watching Howard´s journey to space. These moments are so beautiful!

I would like to see these little things again, not always but with more frequency.

It would be nice to see them drinking hot chocolate at the kitchen island. Amy has some chocolate above her lip, so Sheldon stretches out his hand and wipes the chocolate slowly off with his thumb. As he finishes Amy licks the chocolate off his thumb. But Sheldon doesn´t take his hand away, but watches her how she sucks at his thumb gently.

In those situations the writers would no doubt write a Sheldon freaking out scene because of his germophobe tendencies. Even though he has had sex with her and you would think he would be less of a germophobe towards her.

Even if Sheldon isn't ready to live with her full time you would think with the progression of their relationship we might see in Season 10 perhaps her staying over. I think that would actually be a good idea for Sheldon to get used to her being around before actually living with her. But the with the glacial pace they write at at times maybe even that's too big a step forward at the moment.

The way I look at the show and the stage of their relationship I think the writers could advance their relationship quite a bit and they could get away with it without it being seen as out of character or rushed.

I guess you are right. He would probably give her a bewildered look and pull his hand away saying "That´s not a lollipop!" while Amy would be disappointed that he didn´t show any positive physical  affection to it. 

But on the other hand, it could be a good way, to make Sheldon realise that this simple action, causes him strange feelings, which he can´t identitfies immediately, so he pulls his hand away, because it freaks him out. But after a moment of self reflection he realises, that it was arousal he was feeling at that moment, so he starts to look deep inside him, why he feels that way and why does he feel it in that moment.

An overnight stay is not an issue for Sheldon anymore, since Amy slept at his place, but sleeping with him in his bedroom, I guess would be one still, because  his bedroom is his fortress of safety, his bat cave. He allowes others to sleep in it, but not when he sleeps there as well. Nevertheless, I would love to see Amy spending the night at Sheldon´s, preferably in Sheldon´s bed room, because we know that he has slept in Amy´s bed (at least I assume that he did it, I don´t think that he slapped her thigh and said to her "Well, that was a fascinating experience but now I have to go I need some sleep in my bed", I can´t imagine him being such a dick, especially on Amy´s birthday).

And I would love to see Sheldon preparing everything for Amy´s overnight stay, buying some things for her, to make her feel comfortable and welcome, like he did when Dr. Elisabeth Plimpton visited him.

When did they ever write any germophobic issues into Shamy scenes though? I can't think of anything where he shied away from her or freak out because of germs, specifically. Heck, even when Amy was ill he had surprisingly few issues with that. And while we're on that matter, when was the last time the show made a great deal about his germophobia anyway? Not saying that it has completely vanished but I don't think it's that much of a problem for him anymore - or at least not where Amy is concerned and not in a way that would lend itself towards some good comedy here.

And tbh from a writing standpoint I would find it bizarre that after everything they went through NOW they'd do a "Sheldon freaks out because Amy might have germs" joke....?????

I think a scene like @Desdemona described could be a cute call-back to a gag early in their relationship about Amy doing something similar to him and you could have some charming comedy coming from them being awkwardly flustered by that little sexy moment or whatever. lol

I agree, I think S10 would be perfect to make that kind of step. They could easily use that "gradually moving" method they wanted to do with Lenny if they want to keep it slow or simply call it regular sleepovers but I think the characters are long ready for that. And it would open a lot more opportunities for sweet and funny situations so Idk what the writers are waiting for, really.

Which is also why I'm camp "eager to see the physical intimacy addressed" for S10. It feels like the characters are not just one conversation shy of figuring the whole thing out but also at a point where the writers don't have to limit themselves to just one or two of these big fireworks episodes per season where *everything happens so much* while the rest of the season is tumble weeds rolling through the desert. Doesn't mean they have to be all over each other with PDAs all the time - just find something that works for them. Like, I've enjoyed the little casual things they added with many of the post 9x11 episodes. But for S10 I would definitely be ready to turn those casual touches into some more decidedly affectionate ones.

The bold part is exactly what I was thinking of!

It would be so lovely to see Sheldon being caring to Amy, the last time I remember was when Amy was sick.

Or is it too much to ask from the writers, to show how Sheldon just hugs her, or sits on the couch watching a film with Amy, while his arm is wrapped around her, or that his hand rests on her thigh, while they are all sitting in 4A talking about whatever? Or that Amy falls asleep on Sheldon´s couch, so he carries her to his bed, covers her and gives her a kiss, before ge goes to the bathroom to prepare himself for bedtime?

I would love to see Amy being sad and Sheldon wrapping his arms around her, consoling her.

Sometimes I would like to encourage the writers to come out of their comfort zones and try new things, I´m sure they would be surprised of the outcome. :shy:

Hypothetically if Season 10 is the last and we get an engagement or even one step further a marriage do you think we will learn more about Amy's family? Do we assume that Amy's mother will make a return at some point? I think they could explore that side of her life a bit more. She's obviously not one of the main characters but we know  a lot more about Bernadette's family than we do Amy's.

That's why I really hope tptb have already a clear picture of what's going to happen. My wish is of course that the show stays on the air past S. 10, but if something goes wrong and negotiations fail, I hope the writers don't get this information too late into the season. If they write this season as it is the last, they have 24 episodes to wrap the main plots up, so there could be time for knowing something more about Amy's family, maybe in relation with a possible Shamy engagement (or wedding). But if they start writing a "normal" season, negotiations fail and all in a sudden they realize they have to write a series finale, it's possible that many things could be neglected...and I've the feeling Amy's family might be one of those....

I don´t know, if we get to see the rest of Amy´s family, since they haven´t shown anyone. But if we get a to see a Shamy wedding, the writers will have to introduce at least Amy´s mother and her father if there´s one.

I always wondered if he´s alive or not, but as Amy has never mentioned him nor did her mother seemed to be embittered because she had  a bad relationship, I guess he´s dead. (Maybe he died before Amy was even born) Or maybe she went to a fertilization clinic to get pregnant, because she didn´t find someone appropiate for her and didn´t want to wait for the right one.

Imagine that would be the case and Sheldon would ask Amy´s mother about her father and she would tell him that she went to a fertilization clinic and Sheldon replies: "Oh, I knew these institutions, I masturbated for money once."

I´m sure Amy´s mother would be shocked that her daughter is living in sin and giving her daughter a "What kind of man are dating?" look. 46.gif

This would explain why Amy has never mentioned him and why Amy´s mother insisted that she had dates at least once a year.

It would be fun, if Amy´s mother came for a visit, because she wants to find out, why Amy´s not married yet or for other reasons.

I don´t know if Amy has ever told her, that she and Sheldon lied to her about their sex life, but I would laugh if she still believes that they are "like wild animals on heat" and shout at them to "get themselves together" every time they do something, that in her eyes might indicate that they can´t get their hands off each other.

One last thing I observed: Amy always mentioned female members of her family but never any male members. Is that a coincidence or did I remember wrong? I mean a cousin of her who was near to marry, died a terrible death right before the wedding. Is there maybe a curse?

All these theories are just my opinions of course and I´m curious to hear how the others think about it.

From The Locomotive Manipulation:-

Sheldon: I kissed Amy on the lips

Sheldon: Amy's lips tasted like the brownie we had for dessert.

He didn't freak out then.

Maybe he could find something a little more lollipop-ish (as of now, that's a word), for Amy to suck on instead. :biggrin:

The mystery about Amy's father and the fact she has never even mentioned him might mean the writers did that on purpose, in order to have at some point (if there's time...) a plot about it. The idea of Amy as a test tube baby crossed my mind too; that, or her dad left her mother alone before she was born. I got the impression Amy's mother doesn't have a "good" opinion about men and she gave her a very strict education. That could mean she had bad experiences with men herself, and didn't want her daughter to make her own mistakes. So, those two options (she  wanted a child and decided to do it without a man in her life or she was deceived by  Amy's father) for me are more likely than the fact he was a "nice" guy who died or that he is still in the picture and simply never mentioned.

Well, they can't introduce her cousin Irene, or any of Irene's family.

Nor can they introduce her cousin William.

I'm beginning to think that, being related to Amy Farrah Fowler is bad for your longevity. :laugh:

Good points Mirs!

But why did she want to have Amy to have dates if she thinks less of them?

If she had bad experiences, she wouldn´t want Amy to meet other men to collect the same bad experiences as she did.

She would be embittered i can imagine and tell her "you better stay single, men would only disappoint you".

Or is it maybe, because Amy´s mother was raised, that the only way of life for a woman is to find a man and get children?

I would really like to get to know Amy´s mother better, because there are so many questions unanswered for me about Amy´s family.

Something similar, but I would prefer, if Sheldon would give her a hug, like they shared in the Mars episode, followed by a kiss on her forehead, before he grabs her hand and invites her to have a tea in his kitchen.

Hello 3ku11 and welcome to Shamyland! It´s nice to see the first Lenny in the season 10 thread. (Well, actually the second, the first one was Tensor, who opened the thread for us :shy:).

I agree, the faster Leonard moves to Penny the better. It would give both couples more space for some romantic moments.

The writers have missed at least two oportunities for Lenny to move together:

1. When Penny spoke with the psychiatrist about her living with her husband and his manchild roommate.

2. When Leonard had his little meltdown in the GoT episode.

I've always wondered that, she did encourage her to date a bit but then you hear all the strict stuff from her upbringing so it's difficult to say which is the real deal here. More detail about their relationship would be interesting for sure.

I get the impression as her father isn't mentioned at all that it's likely he's not around or dead. If it's the former then maybe it could be explored, did he leave Amy's mother when Amy was young like what Howard went through? Did he divorce and move on? Was it a one night stand sort of thing and her mother never knew much about him?  Was her father a sperm donor?

It would be interesting to explore her family in more detail especially if they get engaged. Maybe Amy wants a traditional wedding and wants to find out who her real father is and know more about him? Or maybe she wants nothing to do with him but he finds out she's about to get married and he turns up? Maybe Sheldon and Amy talk about her father and her regrets that she never really knew him and Sheldon manages to track him down?  There are loads of possibilities here to explore.

In a way they have a blank canvas with Amy's family as there is so little about them and they could come up with some interesting story-lines both for her and Sheldon.

The bold part would be nice. I´ve always envisioned, that if Amy´s father was alive, Sheldon would search for him, because he wants to ask him for his blessing to marry Amy (just pro forma), as her father is the patriarch of her family. But in my vision, Amy´s father wouldn´t  want  anything to do with her, because he has left the family long time ago and that he has promised Amy´s mom to not get in contact with her.

Sheldon would accept it, but he would tell him, that he´s willing to marry her anyway, because she´s the most intelligent and the most lovely woman he has ever met and that it would not be her loss if he wasn´t part of her life, but his loss if he didn´t want to be part of hers.

I honestly would find that a weird thing to do for a father that is presumably absent from most of Amy's life. If Amy had a close relationship with her father asking for the blessing would feel more fitting but essentially asking a stranger that is (again, presumably) basically just a sperm donor in one way or another, even if it's just pro forma, I would think that would offend Amy's feminist sensibilities.

If Sheldon wants to ask her family for a blessing then I think he should approach her mother instead. And this could also easily bring about either a storyline about finding out more about her dad or family in general (Sheldon is the perfect candidate to ask all the uncomfortable questions! lol) and maybe even play with some conflict with Amy's mother disapproving of their relationship somehow or whatever drama you want to induce here.

At this point I also wouldn't mind if it goes as far as Amy breaking ties with her mother cause the woman hasn't really gotten any redeeming qualities anyway and we know that she and Amy are not particularly close. And as sad as that would be because everything involving Amy's family is terrible in some way, I would love it if that leads then to a moment of not just Sheldon but also the rest of the gang consoling her. I really love the "family by choice" thing and the writers have spoken about that recently as well quite a lot -- so to have a moment with the gang affirming their "family status" with Amy at the centre would make me cry happy tears! So basically, what I'm saying is I want another group hug like this:

TBBTGroup_Hug.gif

But with the whole gang this time! <3

And this could also easily bring about either a storyline about finding out more about her dad or family in general (Sheldon is the perfect candidate to ask all the uncomfortable questions! lol) and maybe even play with some conflict with Amy's mother disapproving of their relationship somehow or whatever drama you want to induce here.

At this point I also wouldn't mind if it goes as far as Amy breaking ties with her mother cause the woman hasn't really gotten any redeeming qualities anyway and we know that she and Amy are not particularly close. And as sad as that would be because everything involving Amy's family is terrible in some way, I would love it if that leads then to a moment of not just Sheldon but also the rest of the gang consoling her. I really love the "family by choice" thing and the writers have spoken about that recently as well quite a lot -- so to have a moment with the gang affirming their "family status" with Amy at the centre would make me cry happy tears! So basically, what I'm saying is I want another group hug like this:

 

But with the whole gang this time! <3

The bold part...for me it falls into the category "Be careful with what you wish", LOL!  Up to 9.03, my head-canon was that Amy's mother were for sure an overprotective, conservative woman, but also a loving mother who tried to shelter her daughter from the evil that was outside (maybe also given some bad experiences she had herself) but also from the fact that Amy was "different", and hence bullied for her difference...The line  "As my mom used to say, when you’re doing a puzzle, it’s like having a thousand friends. She was full of fun lies like that" for me showed a lot of tenderness. I wished to know much more about her and her relationship with Amy...but then, we got the "sin closet" and now it's canon she is...not so loving, and that, as a consequence, Amy is kind of afraid of her to these days and the two of them are not very close.

OMG I was the same - up until 9x03 I was readily giving the woman the benefit of the doubt cause we knew so little about her and many of the anecdotes from Amy could be read as "misguided but probably well-meaning protectiveness" so whatever. But regularly locking her daughter into a closet was crossing a line for me. Jeez. So if the writers want to throw Amy's mother under the bus in order to make a point about their "family by choice" theme with the gang then I'm game! lol

I still hope for a "redeeming" plot, if and when we have a chance to know her history and the reasons why she acted like that with her daughter. The few things we knew about Amy's mother before 9.03 made me feel sympathy towards her, I don't want let her go just yet! Maybe Sheldon, as you said, with his political incorrectness would be the one to ask the right questions at some point.

I don't think we know enough to really form a judgement one way or the other in regards to Amy's mother, her motivations in reference to Amy's upbringing and the type of person she is. Which is why I hope they do explore it a bit more and an engagement and pre-wedding buildup period would be the perfect time to do it.
